    Abstract

    Although creative industries have been popular as a research topic among social scientists from various backgrounds, most studies lack an evolutionary, history informed perspective. Since we regard this as an important deficit, we explore whether the notions of evolutionary economic geography can contribute to analyzing and explaining the spatial dynamics of creative industries, which has not been done yet in a systematic way. We conclude that it is particularly co-evolution that could potentially be an important notion to explain the spatial dynamics of creative industries in a comparative perspective.
